My first euthanization.
I have to euthanize one of my fish for my 25 gallon. The others have eaten off his tail and he looks very much in pain, I will update this after I put my little fishy down. :sob::sob:

I'm so sorry you have to euthanize one of your fish! That has to be a difficult thing to do but we don't want to see our pets suffer.

I never wanna do that again... It makes me deeply disturbed to have to do it.

Fishy-dishy will be buried in my front yard next to my lavender plant.
I don't wanna do that again.

I'm sorry you had to go through what you did but I know you did what was neccessary. :-(

aww hun,sorry you had to go through that,however you did the right thing.

you did do the right thing, some people won't euthanize a fish, they wait till it dies on its own. i guess they feel fish arent important enough to bother with.:(

This is something that I haven't thought of since my tank is relatively new.

What is the most humane way to euthanize a fish?

willow 08-09-2009 04:11 AM

there are many ways,but i thnk that people here including
myself use the clove oil and vodka method.

Romad 08-09-2009 06:40 AM

Clove oil and vodka method? What the heck is that? Guess I have some googling to do.

And do you drink the vodka yourself to get through it? (yes kidding)
